First slide in a set of power point slides has the title "Myths and facts for hearing loss (how hard of hearing people hear) by Beth Wilson, PhD." At the bottom it says "This presentation is available At www.nchearingloss.org/programs.htm The author, Beth Wilson has given permission for anyone to use it."

This document explains basic information on hearing loss. It explains why some of the ideas you might have about being deaf or hard of hearing may be wrong. It explains why a hearing aid can help but cannot solve being deaf or hard of hearing.
